    I cannot hear either Little Red Riding Hood or Hansel and Gretel when I click on the links??

      Hi Katherine, This instruction on the PowerPoint is for the class to listen to the teacher read the story of Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel. The link takes the teacher to the script which they can then read themselves. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Hi, I'm just wondering where the Story Map Worksheets it refers to in the PowerPoint are located? Thanks!

      Hi Rachel, If you open up the PowerPoint and then play the slideshow the links in the PowerPoint should take you directly to each of the resources mentioned. However, here is the link to the story map - https://www.teachstarter.com/teaching-resource/story-map/. Let me know if you have any further questions, always happy yo help. Kind regards, Holly
